The holidays are almost upon us! That means it’s time for planning get-togethers and festivities, and oh yeah -- holiday travel. There’s lots of focus on how to green-up your holiday experience, but what about the impact all that travelling has on the environment?
Crowds and delays and bag fees probably aren’t at the top of your holiday wish list, but if you’re dreaming of a greener way to get to Grandma’s house you may be in luck.
Biofuels -- fuels produced from living organisms or from metabolic by-products -- are finally taking to the skies and being used to help fuel commercial airplanes. While the trend is actually brand new, airlines are quickly jumping on board to make use of the cleaner fuels. There’s even a bit of competition to achieve biofuel “firsts!”
So, what do you know about this up and coming fuel source?
For this month’s Green Quiz Challenge, we’re testing your knowledge of biofuel basics. Send us your answer by emailing email@example.com. The first three correct responders will win a green gift from EarthShare.
